Recipe Wednesday - Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This is another recipe I've adapted from Eat Oxygen. This is sooooooo good. I like cauliflower, but I don't think you can even taste that it is in here. If you think you don't like cauliflower, give this a try!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

For the crust:
1 cup cauliflower, cooked
1/4 cup of packaged egg whites, or 1 large egg
1/4 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T fresh grated Parmesan cheese (off a block of Parmesan, not the dry grated stuff)
pinch each of dried basil, oregano, garlic powder and salt

My (optional) Toppings:
1/4 cup pizza sauce (I use canned with no sugar in it)
1/4 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Boca Grilled Vegetable Patty
1 thin slice of onion, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Place the cooked cauliflower in a food processor. Pulse until about the size of rice.

3. Add everything else to the food processor and pulse to blend.

4. I like to put the cauliflower mixture into a shallow dish to form it into a large circle and then flip it onto the cookie sheet. Then spread the mixture thinly.

5. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven. I usually like to flip the crust at this point. Add your sauce, toppings, and cheese. I cook the Boca patty in a skillet first, crumble it into pieces, and then add the onion to the pan to let it cook a little before adding it to the crust.

6. Return to the oven and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. I like to turn the broiler on right at the end to crisp up the crust.

7. Cut into quarters and enjoy!
